Frequently Asked Questions

​Do I need to be Catholic to attend Mater Dei?

No, while many of our students belong to the Catholic faith, we value diversity and embrace all faith traditions. If like us, you are committed to your child’s holistic education and support the ideal of an inclusive community, your family is warmly welcomed here. All parents, however, must agree to their child being part of Religious Education lessons, school and class prayer/liturgies, and other activities or events that support the religious values and beliefs of the school.

Do I need to live in a catchment area?

No, our families come from far and wide to attend Mater Dei Catholic Primary School. 

What will happen at my child’s interview? 

The purpose of the interview is to you and your child to the school. We will discuss the school's vision and mission, our curriculum, pedagogy, policies, and practices. This is also a great opportunity for you to address any concerns or questions about the school in general or about your child commencing school at Mater Dei Catholic Primary School. Sibling parents are interviewed on request.
